It’s great over pasta, polenta or mashed potatoes. This is the version my Mom always made for us when I was a child, which I’ve always loved. I modified Mom’s recipe to make it a bit leaner by removing the chicken skin and fat and using less oil.

Sheet Pan Teriyaki Salmon and Vegetables

I’m a huge fan of sheet pan meals as they are a huge kitchen time saver! I like to line the sheets with foil or parchment for easy clean-up, completely optional. Here I marinated the fish, then cooked the sauce down on the stove to create a glaze over the fish (I highly recommend this) but if you wish to skip this step, it will still taste fine.

Beets and Goat Cheese Salad

I know beets can be polarizing – people seem to either love them or hate them. I, personally, am a fan. If you’re not sure about beets, this Beet and Goat Cheese salad with Candied Pecans over baby greens is a great place to start. Some people say beets taste like dirt but trust me – once you combine them with sweet, crunchy pecans and creamy goat cheese and then drizzle them with a sweet and tangy dressing, you’ll have a different opinion. For another favorite beet recipe, try this Turmeric Braised Chicken with Golden Beets and Leeks. And see more salad recipes here.

Breakfast Casserole with Spinach and Feta

My husband Tommy claimed this to be the BEST breakfast casserole recipe he’s ever tasted. In fact, he loved it so much he reheated the leftovers the next morning! What he loved most was the texture of the eggs. They are fluffy and light – almost custard-like thanks to adding a little heavy cream. I’m not a fan of spongy eggs and love the texture of this crustless quiche, so I took inspiration from that recipe.
